BREAKING: Iran Arrests Suspects Connected To Ukrainian Plane Crash

Published

on

Several people have been arrested in Iran in connection with last week’s shooting down of a Ukraine International Airlines flight with 176 people on board.

“We conducted intensive investigations and several people were arrested in connection,’’ said Justice Ministry spokesperson, Gholam-Hussein Ismaili, according to the Isna news agency.

Though, he did not disclose the divisions or organisations that employed those arrested, however, said the case is complicated and has many dimensions that must be investigated before a result can be reached.

Iranian President Hassan Rowhani also demanded a seamless investigation.

“This case is no normal case and has to go before a special court and investigated thoroughly by multiple experts,’’ he said, renewing his calls for a complete probe.

He said the investigation must be conducted transparently and, regardless of the findings, made public, with those responsible for the attack on the plane brought to justice.

“We have to make sure that this kind of tragedy never happens in our country again,’’ he said.

Rowhani also said he could not accept a version of events in which one person “who pushed a button’’ is solely responsible for the accident.

He said multiple agencies would have to share the blame which would be apportioned by the investigation.

He said the point is not simply justice for the dead in the plane, but to guarantee security in Iran in the future.

He said he deeply regretted the incident and had already spoken to the leaders of the countries affected by the attack, promising them a thorough investigation.

‘There’s Something Wrong With The Woman, She’s A Sick Puppy’ — Trump Attacks Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump

US President, Donald Trump, went on a tirade against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, on Monday, claiming there’s ‘something wrong with her’ and insisting that she’s a ‘sick puppy’ for holding up the $1 trillion economic stimulus package for a week even though she knew Americans were in desperate need of the aid during this coronavirus pandemic.

Congress passed a $2.2 trillion economic stimulus package on Friday and Trump signed it into law shortly after to help citizens, families and businesses recover economically from financial damages incurred as a result of coronavirus pandemic as the U.S. death toll from coronavirus doubled, reaching 2,000 in the US this weekend.

The president’s attack against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi comes after she launched an attack against him Sunday morning for his handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Pelosi, blasted the president on Sunday for exacerbating the coronavirus crisis, she said on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning.

‘As the president fiddles, people are dying,’

‘What the president – his denial at the beginning was deadly,’ the House Speaker said.

‘His delaying of getting equipment to where – it continues – his delaying getting equipment to where it’s needed is deadly.’

‘And now, I think the best thing would be to do is to prevent more loss of life rather than open things up so that – because we just don’t know,’ she continued

‘We have to have testing, testing, testing – that’s what we said from the start – before we can evaluate what the nature of it is in some of these other regions, as well,’ she continued. ‘I don’t know what the purpose of that is.’

Trump has now aimed his own attack at Pelosi, who infamously led the failed impeachment effort against him towards the ending of 2019.

‘Well you know, it’s a sad thing. Look, she’s a sick puppy in my opinion. She really is. She’s got a lot of problems and that’s a horrible thing to say,’ Trump said in reaction to a question during a Fox & Friends interview Monday about Pelosi blaming him for not handling the coronavirus crisis in a timely manner, and claiming while he ‘fiddles, people are dying.’

‘Dr. Fauci said the other day, if those people came in, if I didn’t do that [closed borders], you would have had deaths like you would have never seen before, and you know, she doesn’t mention that and that was early and don’t forget she was playing the impeachment game. Her game where she ended up looking like a fool,’ the president added of Pelosi.

He also attacked San Francisco, which Pelosi represents, for being a ‘slum.’

‘You hear Nancy Pelosi, who, you know – somehow there’s something wrong with the woman because she knows what we’ve done. And then you look at San Francisco, how her area where she lives has become like a slum, it’s a slum and she should focus on that,’ Trump asserted.

‘Of course she lives in a beautiful house over the ocean, but her area that she’s in charge of has gone from being one of the best in the whole country, it’s become a slum, and they don’t do anything about it. They leave it there,’ he continued in bashing Pelosi’ leadership in San Francisco.

‘All she did was focus on impeach, impeachment. She focused on impeachment and she lost and she looked like a fool, and frankly, it unified our party. And I have to say this – it’s never pleasant – but my poll numbers are the highest they’ve been because of her so we’ll see how it turns out but she should never say a thing like they said,’ he continued.
